Club Update:
Friday we hosted our neighbours Crook Town for a Ebac Northern League division 2 fixture losing 1-2 in a well attended derby game. in fairness Willington very unlucky not to take anything from this game. After the back of 3 defeats, a 1-0 at Ryton which was really a very winnable game, this game saw our previous manager Gary Innes resign straight after.
We also lost at Brandon, again a game which we were hoping to win but came unstuck although we were easily the better side in the second half even with ten men. a magnificent save from Tom Orton in the Brandon goal helped towards them earning the 3 points, The following day saw our previous assistant manager Andy Telfer resign.
We would like to thank both Gary & Andy for the work they did in the short time they were at our club and wish them well in their next ventures.
Former manager and local lad Robert Lee has returned to manage the team along with former physio/coach Paul Goldsborough, joining them to take up a coaching roll is Anth Lee who also will be part of the playing squad, Their first full game in charge saw us lose 3-0 away to Durham, 2-0 down at half time we looked better in the second half but were unable to break down their strong defence.
We have been plagued with some injuries and that has not helped the team, but hopefully once we get back to full strength squad we should start picking up points to push us up the table.
Ground Update: We will be carrying out work with a new tin roof on the supporters hut and finally get it up and running for the fans also a new fence near the Hall Lane ground entrance.
